I just ordered an Arroyo C7. The guy at the bike shop said you should be rolling when you shift it, but not pedaling. In every video review I've seen it says you can downshift at a complete stop if you need to. Which is correct? TIA

You and your videos are correct. The internal gear can be downshifted / upshifted at stop. When bike is moving, you must stop pedalling for a brief moment when shifting.
